Comment (by dd32):

 > I think if the plugin author wants to have the screenshots further down
 in favour of a longer description, it should be there choice. Could have
 it expanded by default, and provide a <!--more--> type mechanism to put a
 read more button if the plugin author wishes?

 I dislike this option, and wouldn't support it's implementation.
 The reason is that it provides too much control to the plugin author over
 the page, resulting in a worse UI as every page acts differently.
 Although I'm not a fan of the read more links, I feel a consistent user
 experience between plugins is far more important than plugin authors
 deciding they want a wall of text.
 If the description needs to be slightly longer for all plugins, we can do
 that, but we should only do that if it's the majority which require it.
